Kuranda Beds



"No Frills" HumaniacTM SCRATCH BRICKS


Scratch Bricks for cats have been around for a long time in various shapes and forms. We have designed our own "no frills" Scratch Bricks to help reduce the stress for confined cats in the shelter. These "bricks" attach securely to cage bars and will encourage cats to perform natural behaviors like scent marking, cleaning their nails and exercising their paws. Most scratch pads are single sided only. ACES Humaniac Scratch Bricks allows for the unit to be turned over, effectively doubling the life of the brick.

Humaniac Cat Castles


The Castle follows the cat from when it enters the shelter all the way to its forever home. Can be purchased as a carrier or a complete unit (as pictured) - perfect for confined cats. Quantity discounts are available on this item.

Volunteers Needed to Gift Wrap!

Get into the true holiday spirit by giving your time to help pets in need!  The Tri-County Humane Society's gift wrapping booth is back for another year at Crossroads Center near Target, and we need all the help we can get!  We will be wrapping gifts during mall hours every day from Black Friday through Christmas Eve.  Round up a group of friends, sign up the entire family, or fill in some of the shifts that need just one more set of hands and make some new friends!  This is one of the few volunteer opportunities that you don't need to currently volunteer at the shelter to be able to help out.  However, anyone under 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult to volunteer.

Signing up is easy!  Just click below.
